Review:

Rethinking Children's Play is a masterful resource of latest research and application on a topic of ever growing importance given that fact that today so many children are having to swim upstream for play and often are at risk of drowning.The book is well-written, cogent, and very engaging with wonderful transcriptions of interviews with leading authorities and boxed features giving examples of research, reflections on research, and suggested activities.The volume promises to inform and to inspire those who read it and who are in a position to act on behalf of children and in response to their need and right to play in different settings including schools, prisons, and hospitals.The reader can consume content on these and a host of other topics to gain fresh insights about how to think about play in ways to enable heightened sensitivity to the perspectives of children and innovative means to impact play directly or indirectly.
James E. Johnson, Professor of Early Childhood Education, Penn State University, USA

This comprehensive examination of play in both the US and UK clearly explains current research and gives practical examples on the value of school, community, prison, and hospital play. It is a very readable and informative volume and includes thought-provoking analyses of negative effects of play deprivation and the positive effects of playwork. Essential reading for educators, parents, social workers, and child advocates.
Pat Broadhead, Professor Emeritus of Playful Learning, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK

The child's right to play is at the heart of this contemporary and accessible book. Essential reading for anyone engaged in playful provision. Highly recommended for parents too!
Mike Greenaway, Director, Play Wales, UK

Book Description Continuum Publishing Corporation, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Rethinking Children s Play examines attitudes towards, and experiences of, children s play. Fraser Brown and Michael Patte draw on a wide range of thought, research and practice from different fields and countries to debate, challenge and re-appraise long held beliefs, attitudes and ways of working and living with children in the play environment. Children need to play and the benefits of play are many and varied, but they are too often underestimated by parents, educators, politicians and society in general. The authors apply a playwork perspective to a wide range of settings populated by children, both formal and informal, to explore the idea that children s learning and development derives substantially from their opportunities to engage with a rich play environment that is supportive of the play process. Thoughts are provoked through examples of research, reflections on research, activities, key points and guidance on further reading. Rethinking Children s Play is essential for all those studying childhood at undergraduate and graduate level and of great interest to those working with children in any field.
